Use of Force by Brad Thor


Use of Force by Brad Thor

“With his latest pulse-pounding adventure, Brad Thor puts the rest of the genre on notice—Use of Force is the thriller to beat in 2017.”—The Real Book Spy

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor.

As a storm rages across the Mediterranean Sea, a terrifying distress call is made to the Italian Coast Guard. Days later, a body washes ashore.

Identified as a high value terrorism suspect (who had disappeared three years prior), his name sends panic through the Central Intelligence Agency.

Where was he headed? What was he planning? And could he be connected to the “spectacular attack” they have been fearing all summer?

In a race against time, the CIA taps an unorthodox source to get answers: Navy SEAL turned covert counterterrorism operative, Scot Harvath.

Hired on a black contract, Harvath will provide the deniability the United States needs, while he breaks every rule along the way.

Packed with pulse-pounding action, fascinating characters, and electrifying intrigue, Brad Thor does it again and proves why he is known around the world as the “Master of Thrillers.”

Customer Reviews

Neatly wrapped ending that came upon the reader too fast.

I could not put this book down! I read it in 2days. I felt my adrenaline rise and fall along with Harvath's. That being said, I found the ending to be anticlimactic! It was over in the blink of an eye. Yes, everything was neatly concluded and I had no questions about the outcome. But it seemed to all happen in 3 pages! Boom, Bang, Done! It certainly will not stop me from reading other books Brad Thor has written.

Harvath is Forceful as Ever

I'm a big fan of Brad Thor and his fictional self, Scott Harvath. Having read all 15 of his previous books I had been anxiously awaiting the release of #16, "Use of Force." As always, the plot is timely and brilliant, and during the action scenes, it is truly thrilling but overall, the pacing was off. Maybe it's just me but Scott's pontificating about our government's squishiness (my word, not his) in dealing with terrorists was tiring. He should know he's preaching to the choir. I'm guessing the majority of his loyal readers hold similar views so beating us over the head with it is unnecessary and doesn't need repeating ad infinitum. That said, I really like where he's taking the characters of Lydia Ryan and Reed Carlton, as well as his girlfriend Lara. Now we have to wait another year for #17. FWIW, "Full Black" is still my favorite.
